She is result oriented, focus-driven, go-getting, a winner, multi purpose and above all sexy. These are just a few words that can be used to describe this incredible woman.

These words could be referring to no other person but the winner of Miss Ghana 2004, Inna Mariam Patty. She is back in town with the Miss Ghana pageantry-but not as a contestant but this time as an organiser with her company- Exclusive Events Ghana.

She has won the exclusive right to organise the event and in her own words, “under Exclusive Events Ghana the Miss Ghana brand would be every young Ghanaian lady’s dream.”

“Miss Ghana 2012 and beyond hope to be an exciting experience in the entertainment calendar of Ghana. Fresh and new additions are certainly going to help make it worth every work we will put in. It is going to be a whole new experience not only for us as a company, but also for all the contestants.”

These thoughts were also echoed by the former organisers of the pageant, Media Whizz Kids’ CEO, Reginald “Gaddy” Laryea when he expressed complete confidence and optimism in the capabilities of Exclusive Events Ghana and its chief executive.

“The good thing about handing the rights of this pageant to Inna is that, she brings a good amount of judgement, experience and precision to the event”.

Inna, he said, brings on board a wealth of experience and the passion for the organization of the pageant. “This is not an event for the faint-hearted and we believe she more than has that tough spirit needed to take the event to the next level,” Mr. Laryea said.

It is going to be national in nature, meaning regional finals will be held in all ten regions before the grand final in Accra.

The 2012 edition will be launched this month and the winner will represent Ghana at this year's Miss World. Stephanie Karikari, Miss Ghana 2010 and winner of the 2011 Miss World Beauty with a Purpose award, will crown the winner.

This is not the first time Inna is going to organise a pageant event. She has loads of experience as she has been involved in the organisation of Miss Togo for several years and has also worked with the Miss South Africa team for quite sometime.

These experiences gathered are enough to show that she is more than capable of pulling it off without many problems. Inna was born in Lagos, Nigeria and grew up in Ghana with its tropical weather, a rich heritage and an interesting kaleidoscope of cultural attractions.

She schooled at Wesley Girls High School in Cape Coast and went to the University of Ghana. She is also an alumnus of the London School of Economics and worked as head-hunter at the London Stock Exchange.

She is currently studying for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Administration, after which she will take a year off to honour an invitation to do an attachment in a law firm in Ghana, and then enrol in Law School as it is her ambition to be a corporate lawyer.

As ‘Tourism Ambassador’, she championed the introduction of paragliding and hang gliding in Ghana and Africa at large which has come to stay especially when it is time for Easter festivities at Kwahu in the Eastern Region.

Other interests include: Listening to R & B and Soul, Orating, and looking after her pet dog called Snoopy and her adopted crocodile, Frank. Her motto is “Whoever much is given, from him much will be expected”.

Inna is just twenty-nine years and single. She started Exclusive Events Ghana about six years ago, but professionally for the past two years. The company specializes in corporate, charity, special/themed and social events with a large clientele base in Ghana and beyond.
